Edgetech’s Third Annual Golf Day Gathers the Industry

Edgetech, a Quanex company, was pleased to host its annual Super Spacer Dealership
Golf Day for the third year running on 29th August 2013 at Staverton Park, Daventry.
Some well-known names and some not so well-known but just as important friends
from across the industry gathered together for a day of golf, followed by dinner, the
much anticipated presentation featuring shots and videos from the day and the charity
raffle.

Following the success of last year’s event and the tremendous spirit of generosity
shown towards its chosen charity, the Realize Trust, Edgetech decided to support the
same charity again this year. Andy Jones, Edgetech’s Managing Director explains: “The
Realize Trust is a charity close to our heart as it was established by Andy & Agnes
Gwynn of Crystal Clear (SW) Ltd, a member of our Dealership scheme, in memory of
their daughter Courtney who tragically took her own life in January 2012 when she
was only 14 years old. We pride ourselves on supporting our customers in their
business dealings and so, when we heard about the charity it seemed only right that
we support them with this personal mission too. Since last July the Realize Trust has
been busy getting its important message and information out regarding teenage suicide
to as many teenagers, and parents, as possible. Their campaign is already proving
successful with many celebrities wearing Realize Trust wristbands on programmes like
Daybreak to raise the profile of the cause. We are pleased to again be able to help
further their work with the support of our golf day guests, as we raised the wonderful
sum of £4110 during the raffle and auctions in the evening. We would like to say a big
thank you to all those in the room who dug deep for this worthwhile cause and of
course the companies who donated prizes as without their backing we couldn’t have
hoped to achieve such a significant amount.”

Agnes Gwynn of the Realize Trust comments: “I cannot thank Edgetech and their golf
day guests enough. This latest donation will provide us with the funds needed to
continue with our main focus, improving and standardizing the coverage of Mental
Health and Wellbeing in schools, as well as supporting as many people as possible to
go through Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST). We still have so much to
do and your donations will make a big difference, they potentially could save a young
person’s life.”

The winning team on the day was made up of the Cleartherm players, Gareth Laing,
Wayne Riley & James McShane who were helped by Edgetech’s very own Mel Jones to
their first place spot. The winner of the coveted individual 1st place trophy was Richard
Oakes of Oakland Glass, followed by Kevin Warner of Kömmerling in 2nd place and
Cleartherm’s Wayne Riley in 3rd.
